They also have different input shafts and torque converters. A leaking transmission pan gasket doesn't get worse or better when the vehicle is running. Look at the reading you get on the digital display of your volt meter. If your fluid is correct then take it to a mechanic, they can check your transmission with their computer and see exactly what is happening when it can't find 4th gear. An automatic transmission is more complicated, it has a torque converter, pumps, numerous valves a … nd some are electronic. I picked this one up at O'Rielly's. A standard clutch is made up of clutch plates and discs, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing and other components.
They are all a little bit different, but the procedure is the same when you want to change the transmission fluid and filter. What a cool and capable truck eh? Tighten the oil pan bolts to 11 Nm 97 inch lbs. Do not use any other fluid in this transfer case! It stays the same due to the fact that trans fluid sits above the gasket at all times unless of course the fluid is low. . Each code is flashed 3 times. Designed for configurations, the series includes 4 forward gears and 1 reverse gear. Make sure the car is raised high enough so you can work under the car freely.
It won't shift into overdrive. Total mileage on trans is 188,000. It is an evolution of the , originally produced in 1982. Be careful when you lower the pan, there will still be a little fluid left in there. I picked up a 5 gal bucket and lid from Home Depot.
Immediately pull it out again and check the fluid level. Gear ratios: 1 2 3 4 R 3. This procedure with allow you to flush all the fluid from the tranny, converter, lines, cooler, etc. A half a quart can make a big difference in fluid level so start small. I don't remember when I last changed mine. Next, you'll need a small hose clamp, flare nut wrench and something to catch the fluid in. That's probably where the leak is or the line leading to it.

To place the new seal, coat it in trans fluid and use a socket of the same diameter on an extension to give you something to hold onto and tap it into place. My rig's identical and has now done 137k kilometers with no issues whatsoever Except crank position sensor but I did have the transmission serviced at 80k by an Allison trained guy. My man used Dexron as recommended, changed the filter s and we've done it twice in the life of the truck.
With the right tools, you can determine whether the transmission shift solenoid is having a problem.
